The default database in WSO2 products is an embedded H2 database, which stores user data and data related to WSO2 Carbon, the platform on which WSO2 products are built. However, you can use the scripts provided with WSO2 products to install and configure several other types of relational databases, including MySQL, IBM DB2, Oracle, and more. These scripts are located in the <PRODUCT_HOME>/dbscripts/ folder.
